He said at the present time about 100 farm workers are housed at Cone Camp. Another migrant workers would begm moving north. Young reported that the Association is placing an application with the state Department of Employment for 100 foreign workers. "It is quite apparen that there aren't any domestic work- just that time of year to north," he observed. Charles Cram, Cone Camp camp, giving the River Growers Association a total work force of 300 men. In early March, Redlands citrus growers had a work force of some 530 men available to work m local groves. "We have lost 150 men in the past 30 days," Cram stated, "They just get tired of picking oranges and want a change. Many of them were earning more than $2 an hour." He noted, "This is a regular pattern. We just can't seem to hold the workers when other jobs open up in central California." A hint of the current labor shortage is provided by the association's advertised appeal, "Orange Pickers Needed," which was carried in Wednesday's Facts. It is the first such advertisement in recent years. "What we need are 100 dependable men who will stay on the job," Cram emphasized. Redlands growers were able to avoid a major labor shortage during the December through March harvest of navel oranges. Ralph Sechrest, president of River Growers Association, pre- go j dieted in late February that a labor crisis could probably be stalled off until April when the 200 workers live outside the]ers available. We just don't know where to turn," Yount said. He added that local growers are trying to avoid the calamity which struck strawberry and asparagus growers who lost portions of their crops for lack of harvest crews. 'We have quite a long time in which to harvest the Valencia crop, but the fruit must be marketed in an orderly manner," he explained, "Our aim is to prevent losses and to get the fruit to market when it ought to get there." Young pointed out that the labor crisis is not limited to Redlands. It is a problem throughout the citrus industry, particularly lemon growers who must pick twice as much fruit in the next two months as they did last month—and with half as much help. The labor problem here and elsewhere in the state was precipitated by the termination of the Bracero program on Dec. 31, 1964. Mexican Nationals available under the program had supplied a sufficient work force to harvest Redlands citrus crops. Efforts to hire unemployed U.S. citizens (domestics) have thus far failed to take up the slack. Mail preview pianned on Fiftli street Downtown shoppers are to be treated to a "sneak preview" of the Citrus-to-State phase of the Fifth street mall June 10 to 12. On those dates, by action of the City Council this week. Fifth street between Citrus and State is to be closed off and transformed into a simulated mall. The street closure will be in connection with a promotional event marking the opening of the Redlands Plaza which includes the first phase (Vine to Citrus) of the Fifth street mall project. "This is a good time to test the traffic impact of closing off Fifth street for a mall," observed Mayor Waldo F. Burroughs. The street is to be decorated with potted trees and plants, and park benches are to be set up. "In this manner," the Council was advised, "the second phase of the mall development would be graphically displayed to citizens of Redlands."

This week the Council grabbed up a small triangular-shaped parcel of land at the southeast corner of Sylvan boulevard and Lincoln street. The price was about S34. The parcel—108 feet by 108 feet by 60 feet—is listed on the county's list of tax delinquent properties. For the cost of back taxes, $8.39, and advertising costs, $25, the city may purchase the land. The Public Works department recommended the acquisition for possible street widening purposes. ' resklenrof Tucson;Tri: lion.

Earher this year, Councilmen approved the new LARTS program in principle, but declined to sign the formal participation agreement. Their skittishness was prompted by fears that the expanded program represented a state takeover in local planning matters. Council fears were ended Tuesday when Planning director W. C. Schindler advised the councilmen that state officials had provided additional information on the new LARTS agreement. The city participated fully in the original LARTS program. "I now find nothing wrong with the new LARTS agreement. My earher fears are alleviated," Schindler said. Schindler had been critical of the LARTS proposal which he said carried the regional study beyond transportation matters and into the area of land use and zonmg. Redlands participation in some type of regional planning effort is necessary to qualify for federal road improvement funds. To meet this requirement, the Council had joined ranks with other cities and counties in forming the Southern California .Association of Governments (SC.AG). Thus far, SCAG has not received sufficient support to become a functioning organization. nieces, Mrs. Helen Grisaniorc, Redlands; Mrs. Jean Putnam, Monrovia: and Mrs. Irene Perkins.
